Judging from the schedule and the sun, it's most likely bound for FRA on the afternoon LH106 service STD 1425L, replacing an A310.

The picture would have been taken at MUC Riem so ?

No, 106 was DUS>FRA à l'époque. I have fed the location info into the correction dialogue, but it doesn't show yet. (The (timewise) closest MUC>FRA service would have been LH261 - so there's been some shake-up in intra-german flight numbering since then, though notably HAM>FRA>HAM have retained theirs throughout, that is LH001 ff.)

Avec grand plaisir. That Saturday afternoon, some 50 km from the cam - in fact, your cam is facing my way, imagine me beyond those woods - I was doing my homework, or my father had me gardening or was I stalking my father to take me to DUS once more, as we did sometimes after Saturday's shopping ; as we must have done on one of those first Saturdays of a month (no school) of that spring : When (unknowingly) I collected the seq. number one item of my timetable collection from the travel agency of the Essen Karstadt department store, which I pulled out hours ago to better remember ; which comes in a distressed look from too much love ; which was accompanied by the Air France edition introducing the A320 on the cover and the British Airways Tristar edition disc. May 28th, 88, very soon. Which makes me assume that we went to DUS within a couple of weeks from this photo indeed, likely on a Saturday afternoon, sometimes early enough to make the LH408 to Kennedy, let her be delayed. She would be seen from the parking lot, her tail surmounting the hangar towards which Alfa Kilo is pushed in your photo, and which still exists. I would hurry my folks to the obs terrace.

I love these lazy Saturday afternoons to this day.

Aujourd'hui, 408 est morte.
